Top Eight Sea Kayaking Hot Spots

West: Baja (Mexico)

Sea kayaking in Baja, Mexico offers paddlers a unique opportunity to explore two contrasting environments: the unique flora and fauna of the Sonoran Desert and the marine environment of the Sea of Cortez. The warm-water, warm-weather paddling is ideal; some fans of this kayaking destination would go so far as to say that it is the premier choice. The Sea of Cortez is one of the richest marine habitats in the world, and the translucent waters offer exceptional viewing of dolphins, sea lions and quite possibly blue whales as they mate and calve each winter. Navigate under sheer volcanic cliffs or stop for hikes up El Embudo. This is an optimum destination for people who enjoy snorkeling, hiking, fishing, beachcombing and nature photography.
